How do I care for sick kittens?

My kittens are not eating, they are sluggish and sleep all the time.

A vet visit is recommended of course. You may have to force-feed your kitten. Using an eye dropper or syringe is recommended. Feed small amounts and don't forget water. Sick kittens can pass very quickly and should be cared for when you first notice a problem.

Try bottle feeding the kittens with KMR and give some smelly canned food. Keep them warm at all times. Take them to the vet for a check up.

The kittens may have been too young to be weaned from the mother. Young kittens require their mother's milk to survive. If they have been weaned early, they need vets.

It is extremely important that the kittens are drinking and are getting nutrients into their bodies. They should be seen by a vet to rule out diseases like distemper and to make sure they don't have parasites.
